    Survivor guide: Travelling North Island New Zealand


    Visiting North Island New Zealand can be described as a real once in a lifetime adventure. However there are several dangers that all visitors should prepare for to ensure that their holiday is not ruined.

    Anything from a road accident or slip, trip and fall is bad enough when you are at home, but when you are abroad it can seem so much worse.

    So before you pack your bags and head off on this once in a lifetime adventure here are a few things you should consider in order to avoid a travel accident.

    Know your speed limits

    One of the best ways to see this fantastic part of the world is by car, and cars are relatively easy and cheap to hire in New Zealand. If you are going to do this you need to be fully aware of the rules of the road and how other motorists drive in that country. So be aware of things like speed limits and local habits, not to mention speed limits that are in kilometres per hour, otherwise you may find yourself in a road accident.

    Be aware of the terrain

    The spectacular scenery is exactly why people visit this part of the world. Not only is it great to look at, but it makes for the ideal terrain when it comes to hiking and outdoor pursuits. But if you are venturing out to experience this spectacular scenery at first and, make sure you have the right equipment with you. Poor footwear and a lack of local knowledge can easily lead to potentially harmful slips, trips and falls.

So if you’re not prepared for everything that nature throws at you, you could be caught out. If you’re venturing out in New Zealand then make sure you pack for every eventuality.
